I think it’s pretty hard to get lost on my trails – even when I go outside of my usual rounds, but of course it’s pretty easy to follow the smells.
My person thinks the trails are hard to get lost on too, but she uses a different method to find her way.
She’s taller than me so she can see further. She says there are lots of landmarks to find your way by.
It’s also hard to go very far without running into either houses or something that falls between a very large rock and a very small mountain.
I can’t read them so I have to trust my person when she says those tall poles sticking out of the ground hold signs that point out the trails.
In some places there are even cairns to mark the trails. At least my person says they mark the trails.
I thought they were put there so dogs could leave messages for each other. At least that’s what we use them for.
Even with all these ways to navigate (Person, navigate is too big a word for me.) the trails, my trails can be really tricky for new people. There are little loops that go off and come back to the main trail. Maybe they were put there on purpose so people would go in circles and not be able to find their car again. Then the trail loop car collectors could take their pick of the cars that were left.
Those car collectors probably don’t like my person much though. When she’s asked, she tells those lost people how to get out of the loop.
I think my person’s pretty cool though. Today I got loves from some people she was helping.
Those people were really lost. They were trying to find a place called Wisconsin.

Ah, yes Bongo, your person is so cool for many many reasons! 🙂
Happy to see you thunder vest free!!!

Marina, my person usually takes my thunder vest off me at night, then she has to put it back on again in the middle of the day. Except last night she had to put it on in the middle of the night. It was really bad. At least I got to go to church today and listen to the thunder from there.

Oh golly Bongo those lost persons were really lucky to find your mom…They’d be circling an awful long time looking for Wisconsin 😉

Gizmo, when we first found those people they were even headed in the wrong direction. I don’t know where Wisconsin is, but my person seemed pretty good at directing them. At least they found their car. Maybe they should get one of those GPS thingies like you have.
July 25, 2013 at 2:15 pm
Wisconsin! Those people were really directionally challenged. Good thing you and your person showed up.
July 25, 2013 at 2:58 pm
Patricia, I think they might have ended up in California instead if we hadn’t shown up. When we found them they were headed in the wrong direction.

Wisconsin! That’s what I call lost! You and your person and smart to navigate and help visitors navigate on those trails. If my mom doesn’t have her GPS, she’s confused.
Love and licks,

Cupcake, I think those Wisconsin people needed a GPS. When we found them they were going the wrong way. They might have ended up in California – or maybe Utah.

I’m pretty sure Wisconsin doesn’t look a bit like that! They must have been pretty lost 🙂
July 25, 2013 at 8:23 pm
BZ, they were really lost. They were going to total opposite direction. They couldn’t even find their car in order to get back to Wisconsin.

Benny & Lily, I think those people might have ended up in a whole other state if we hadn’t straightened them around.

I’d been always wondered how you found your way on your trails because to me, your trails looked very complicated….but now I know that there are landmarks on your trails….very helpful.
Your person is so sweet to help those lost people! 🙂

Kevin, it’s always fun helping visitors to my trails because we get to meet new people – and sometimes I even get loves.
July 27, 2013 at 1:47 am
Bongo, the people were very lucky that they found you and your person to show them the right way. You both are COOL 🙂

Thanks Little Binky. I love playing tour guide on my trails. Especially when I get loves as payment.
July 28, 2013 at 8:12 am
My inbuilt GPS is a catastrophe: I always take the wrong direction. If I visited your trails, I’d desperately needed your or your person’s guidance.
July 28, 2013 at 2:14 pm
Kolytyi, I would love to guide you around my trails. And I’d make sure you didn’t get lost at all.

Wisconsin? The land of cheese and the Packers? Wow, they are really lost!
August 11, 2013 at 2:00 pm
The land of cheese? I should’t have let my person help those people until they gave me some cheese.
